Other Schools of Thought
Life Science + 2B WUT BR + Cost of Living
By Morris Panych

Other Schools of Thought is a collection of three unique plays that allow adult audiences to reflect on their past and young audiences to reflect on their future. With stark sets and minimalist presentational styles, they leave no room for condescension—for dismissal of “adult concerns” by the young. In their treatment of sexuality, substance abuse, AIDS and identity crises, these plays open up the common ground between young adults and old children, mapping the personal uncertainties unleashed by everyone’s contemplation of life’s “big questions.” They are ruthlessly honest enough to permit us to see that adult responses of young people to the questions of their future. If these plays are “plays for young adults,” they are so only in the sense that Romeo and Julietis a play for young adults.
